Granaz reunites, still crying after seeing the coffins in the ambulance, wanted to take a peek at her children but was not allowed.
The police then took Ms. Granaz reunites and her children into custody.

Khan Marri, happy to be reunited with his family, said: “My wife and children have been healed, so there is no need to continue the occupation. I am grateful to the members of the Marri tribe and people from other communities who supported me and participated in the protest that helped save my family and accept our demands.

Some youths opposed the decision to suspend the occupation, but Marri Itte’s leaders refused to continue the occupation, stating that their demands for the recovery of the Khan Marri family and the arrest of Sardar Khetran had been met.
Meanwhile, Interior Minister Mir Ziaullah Langove said in a press conference that the entire provincial apparatus, including the police, conscripts and intelligence services, had played an important role in rebuilding the Khan Marri family. He added that the JIT and a special police team are investigating the Barkhan murders.
“It was a joint effort by all armed forces and intelligence agencies that was successful when Khan Marri’s wife and five children were located and returned to Quetta after recovering.
He expressed dissatisfaction with the use of the tragic incident for political ends & Granaz reunites, saying that instead of helping and cooperating, these people began to engage in politics and assign blame.
“The JIT has opened an investigation and will report within 30 days,” he said, adding that anyone held responsible for this tragedy faces serious legal action.
The Home Secretary said that some people want to make policy on the matter because they are demanding that the bodies not be buried until their requests regarding the detained suspect Mahal Baloch are granted.
He said an investigation into the matter was ongoing.
